Internet & Networking I hate when I have to report on stuff I just don't care about. However, it's big news, because for some reason I'm not particularly privy to, this photosharing service is more popular than god. Yes, Facebook has acquired Instagram. Update: "At the end of the day, that's what Instagram filters are: a crutch, a misguided replacement for a properly composed shot and a decent sensor."

Maybe in US, because here in Germany I don't know anyone who knows it.

I'm from the Netherlands, and I sincerely never heard of Instagram.

My impression was that its popularity comes from the rubbish cameras in the iPhones pre 4S. It's a dumb fad.

The iPhone 3Gs and 4 cameras are decent camera. There are some amazing pics taken on 3GS cameras.

That's exactly how I took it. With Facebook buying the service, it keeps Google from having an instant photo sharing solution for iOS like they do with Android and the Google+ app.
